The Kansas 'Goat Gland' Doctor
Two-time candidate for Kansas governor, radio pioneer and ... goat gland doctor? John Romulus Brinkley may not have been a real medical doctor but he was a helluva salesman. Filmmaker Penny Lane's latest documentary, NUTS!, explores the life of the 1920s flimflam man who became a millionaire "curing" impotence and built the most powerful radio station of its day.
Tivoli Cinemas and the Kansas City Women in Film & TV will host a meet-and-greet with Penny Lane during a matinee showing of 'NUTS!' at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 1. For more information and other show times, visit TivoliKC.com.
